Outline three outcomes of the sequencing of the complete human genome.

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international cooperative venture established to sequence the 3 billion base pair (~25,000 genes) in the human genome.

 

The outcomes of this project include:

Mapping:  We now know the number, location and basic sequence of human genes.

Screening:  This has allowed for the production of specific gene probes to detect sufferers and carriers of genetic disease conditions.

Medicine:  With the discovery of new proteins and their functions, we can develop improved treatments

Ancestry:  It will give us improved insight into the origins, evolution and historical migratory patterns of humans
